I've tried in the ADSM and I've tried the CLI and I can't remove or change these entries.

Any know what I'm doing wrong here?

fw-x-5520-1(config)# flow-export destination iSP2/Swift 10.xx.x.xx 2055
ERROR: flow-export: destination already exists
fw-x5520-1(config)# no flow
fw-x5520-1(config)# no flow-export en
fw-x-5520-1(config)# no flow-export enable
ERROR: This command is no longer supported. Flow-export actions under MPF need to be removed to stop exporting NetFlow events.

give the details of sh run | i flow-export

The error is showing destination in use because it value is yet to time out

try again the same command.

This appears when I do a sh run but not when I look through the config itself.

fw-517-5520-1# sh run | in flow
flow-export destination ISP2/Swift 10.66.x.x 2055
  flow-export event-type all destination 10.66.x.x

Remove the netflow configuration from the policy-map first (or just remove the class that has the netflow association from the policy-map), then you would be able to remove the netflow configuration.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the reply.  Here is the config for policy-map. I tried to remove the policy map but got the error below.  What is the correct commands to remove flow-export?  Thanks.

policy-map global_policy
class class-default
  flow-export event-type all destination

AlzASA(config)# no policy-map global_policy
ERROR: policy-map global_policy is being used and hence cannot be removed.

Here is the steps:

no service-policy global_policy global

policy-map global_policy

     no class class-default

service-policy global_policy global
